Teaching by Example

Psalm 34 11

Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:11

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

 

The best gift we can give our children is to teach them to obey and follow the Lord which leads to wisdom, prosperity and a happy life. Teaching children to fear the Lord doesn’t mean they should be afraid of Him, it means they should respect Him and put Him first in their lives. Fear of the Lord requires awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, faith, trust, thankfulness and love.  We teach these to our children not just by word but by example. Share Jesus, the greatest gift of all, with your children.

Put God First

Colossians 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 1:17

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

 

If you feeling like things are falling apart put God first in your life.  Everything else will fall into place and will be held together by His power.

Earnestly Seek God

Psalm 63 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:1

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

 

If you want to have a closer relationship with God you must seek him with a sincere heart, soul, body, and mind.  You must want it more than anything else. You need to put God first and make time to spend with him and when you do you will find him.

New Year’s Resolutions

1 12-30 1 Colossians 3 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

 

This is the time of year when we start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.  We decide to make changes and declare goals that will improve our lives.  The Bible tells us we should set our minds on things above and that our thoughts and goals should be focused on Christ and our future home, heaven.  Everything on Earth is temporary and even though we need to care and provide for ourselves while here our hearts should not be devoted to possessions. As we contemplate our New Year’s resolutions let us be mindful to include goals that put God first in our lives.
